Course summary

The course

This programme builds on Royal Holloway’s strong links to the police service. It is aimed at students already working for the police or who aspire to join the police.

The programme incorporates interdisciplinary perspectives and embraces the notion of inter-professional working.

Having graduated, you will have developed your problem solving and social research skills along with data analysis and interpersonal skills.

This course will be run as part of a suite of postgraduate programmes being offered by the School of Law. As such, options will be available to take in both our Social Work and Terrorism and Counter-Terrorism Masters modules.

  • Develop a critical understanding of the evolution of strategic policing in the UK and its future challenges.
  • Consider changes to police governance and accountability.
  • Examine evidence-based policing and research methods.

Teaching & assessment

You will take two core modules worth 30 credits each and complete a dissertation worth 40 credits. You will also chose three optional modules worth 20 credits each.

Your future career

The degree is designed to be directly applicable to your working environment and to satisfy your aspirations to develop your career further, both by offering modules that are aligned with many of the strategic priorities that lie ahead for policing and through offering option modules that enable you to specialise in particular areas.
